Milagro Modern Mexican

20 Allen Ave. Webster Groves, MO 63119 | Webster Groves | 314-962-4300

Location Description:

A step beyond the city's usual Mexican restaurants, Milagro offers thoughtful presentations of traditional and contemporary Mexican fare. You can enjoy roast chicken smothered in a complex mole poblano, mahi mahi in a bright mole verde or salmon simply dressed in a salsa of mango, cilantro and annatto oil. Huitlacoche, a corn-blighting fungus that is also a Mexican delicacy, makes a rare appearance in the fantastic quesadillas tradicionales. Another standout is a tostada appetizer featuring pulled duck meat in a blood orange-habanero sauce. Oh, and the top-shelf margarita is topnotch.
